Laramie County School District 1 parents and students have a new tool to help them know when it's time to catch the bus.

LCSD1's Transportation Department announced Friday that it's implementing a new software system, Here Comes the Bus, which allows users to know exactly where the bus is.

"The HCTB App sends a notification to the parent/student when the school bus is close to the student’s bus stop and when the bus enters the school’s student drop-off/pick-up zone," the department stated in a news release.

The app can be downloaded for free from the App store or Google Play.  Students must be registered to ride the bus for the app to work.​
